We need your help to feed all of the HVWHPF rescued horses!
We need to raise funds by September 15th to buy hay for October 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018.
Will you please help? As an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit, every dollar donated for this fundraiser goes straight to the cost of hay.
Every dollar helps reach the goal, a little or a lot! And we try to stretch those donated dollars as far as we can by buying "big bales" whenever we can!
The HVWHPF Fall Hay Fundraiser Goal is $12,600 by September 15th.
Donate through PayPal with the buttons to the right on this page and note "HAY" where it offers to "Add special instructions to the seller".
Or if you'd rather send a check, note "HAY" and mail to:
PO Box 20052
Reno, NV 89515

ATTENTION ALL YOUTH!
Do your kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews/friends like art? Drawing, painting, coloring, sculpting, creating?
HVWHPF invites all youth 18 years old and under to submit an art piece (or several!) of a wild horse or horses. Art can be real life, whimsical, abstract, coloring in a picture... you create it however you like!
Please include a signed note from mom or dad letting us know we can use/display your art, name and age. We will display art pieces at upcoming events,feature them on Facebook and other social media outlets, display at Foothill Feed & Mercantile, and on our website. We might even select yours to be used as a promo for a future HVWHPF event!
Art pieces become property of HVWHPF unless specific arrangements are made individually.
Become part of the movement to show the world our wild horses! Show us what you've got!
Art can be dropped off in person at Foothill Feed & Mercantie, 1330 Geiger Grade in South Reno (just past the traffic circle between the school bus yard and the plant nursery.)

Or mail to: HVWHPF, PO Box 20052, Reno, NV 89515
Help HVWHPF with the purchase of MUCH NEEDED panels or gates!
It's a great way to know exactly where your donated dollars are going and help with a much needed setup to best care for the horses!
The HVWHPF rescued herd south of Reno is on beautiful acreage, however separating them for vet, hoof or other care, training, or adoption is
difficult at best.
HVWHPF needs 20 5-rail fence panels and 5 gates to set up a walk through system of paddock/pens and loading chute.
We are fortunate to be able to purchase these at incredible rates and as a non-profit we can purchase them without tax.
A donation to HVWHPF of $87 or $120 (or multiples thereof) will be directly applied to the purchase of the needed panels/gates.
Donations are tax deductible.
You also have the option to purchase the panel/gate directly and donate them to HVHWPF, however tax would be applied as it would be considered a private purchase and then a donated item. We can provide you with a tax deductible donation receipt for the donated panel/gate.
Either way works for the horses! You can also donate a smaller amount and note that you want to direct it to these purchases.
You can donate through PayPal or with a card using the bottom PayPal button to the right that allows you to enter any donation amount. There is an option to "add special instructions to the seller" where you can indicate you are making a panel or gate donation. (Donation amounts of $87 or $120 will automatically be put toward these purchases with or without notes.)
Or if you prefer to directly purchase the panel or gate to donate you may do so through Foothill Feed & Mercantile in person at 1330 Geiger Grad Rd or by phone at 775-852-0999.
Will you help us with this much needed project today?

-Bales of hay - always a priority!

Wild Horses are icons of American Culture. They are symbols of freedom and are the elemental bridge between the ancient rhythms of nature and the contemporary human being. In today's world, we simply throw away our cars, toys, furniture, clothes, and yes, even our animals when we tire of them. No one is to blame. We’ve just forgotten what nature presented to us. As civilization closes in on them, the wild horses' struggle for survival intensifies. Our federal and local governments have often turned their backs on these beautiful creatures and failed to execute their responsibilities as guardians and caregivers.
Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund (HVWHPF) is a non-profit 501(c)3, all volunteer organization founded over 30 years ago and incorporated in 2008 to protect the free roaming wild horses of Nevada's Virginia Range.
In 2012 HVHWHPF, backed by American Wild Horse Campaign and a coalition of wild horse organizations and individual donations, were able to purchase 149 horses (some pregnant) that had been removed from the range by the State of Nevada to keep them from being purchased to ship for slaughter.
HVWHPF continues to work to protect horses still in the wild on the range, as well as caring for, and seeking safe adoptive homes for, the rescued horses where they can live out their lives with love and compassion.
